In the PY Agenda series I share a roundup of upcoming events. Subscribe to the Discovering Paraguay Facebook page for more event recommendations!
The Museo Boggiani in San Lorenzo is one of the best places to view and purchase indigenous crafts ( for some examples check out this post ). It is a short ride from Asunción, just off San Lorenzo´s main plaza (the museum´s sign is barely visible though). This crafts fair is a great chance to interact with members of Paî Tavyterâ communities from Amambay. Remember the museum accepts donations in the form of food and clothing which are distributed throughout Paraguay´s indigenous communities. UPDATE: The museum’s correct address is: Coronel Bogado 888 c / Saturio Ríos.
